The effects of aging on the renal function of a healthy population in Beijing and an evaluation of a range of estimation equations for glomerular filtration rate

Comparison of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) equations for different serum creatinine levels. (A) Male. (B) Female. eGFR: evaluated glomerular filtration rate; CKD-EPI: Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration equation; MDRD: Modification of Diet in Renal Disease Study equation; MDRDc: Chinese MDRD equation; FAS: Full Age Spectrum.
